Seeing Kens number 7 reminds me of a time 10+ years ago that my dream shop was to be filled with cabinet saws, wide planers, router tables, and dust collection for the lot. I built a laminated pine workbench and needed the top flattened and none of my fancy power tools or machines could accomplish the task. I did some reading and found a type 16 Stanley #7 on EBay, my first plane. I flattened that bench top and haven’t looked back as I have sought out hand tools and the skills to use them.
Ken your #7 brings back fond memories of first opening a door to a new place in my life. Didn’t mean to distract this thread off topic but wanted to share.

Thanks Brent, I enjoyed reading your post buddy. I love reading about fellow woodworkers and there experiences 🙂12 December 2012 at 8:49 pm #4657
Happy Birthday Ken Have a gooden
Because I have always bought my timber ready planed ( even if it is not a stock size my timber merchant will plane it to size )I have not found the need for the larger planes. I find that my Stanley Block , No3,4,4 1/2 and record No 5 satisfy my needs I do have a Quansheng No 6 but have never used it on a project.
Am I missing out ( Cheating) by buying ready planed timber or is there a use for the bigger planes on planed timber

I dont think you are cheating at all, buying rough sawn timber is a lot cheaper though.
This will explain it better than me………http://virginiatoolworks.wordpress.com/2012/06/22/select-the-best-bench-plane-for-the-job/
